A significant increase in the number of Indians covered under health insurance has helped propel consumer spending on pharmaceuticals. Pharmaceuticals have become more accessible, owing to the rise in public healthcare expenditure. This has fueled the growth of the pharmacy retail market, especially in rural areas and tier-II cities.
A sluggish economy as a result of agrarian crisis, retail inflation, and lack of fiscal stimulants, has had a bearing on the profitability of the pharmacy retail market. Furthermore, uncertainty in drug pricing hinders market growth by way of impacting investors' sentiments.

The pandemic impeded supply chain and logistics. Inter-state transportation was disrupted, so was the supply of raw materials from China. Online pharmacy, however, gained massive traction amid the pandemic. The lockdown encouraged the adoption of online pharmacy among consumers with chronic diseases, especially from tier II and tier III cities. Online retailers experienced surged orders and sales of pharmaceuticals, and embraced various growth strategies to meet the swelling demand.
